Rise and shine, pixel people!
Sometimes, it’s the little things that really make a game feel immersive. One such small detail from past Sims games that’s missing in The Sims 4 is functional alarm clocks. For the most part, Sims tend to wake up at 6am every morning, provided that their Energy bar is full by 6am. While this may work fine for some Sims, other Sims will have trouble waking up in time to go to their night shift jobs. If your Sim’s lifestyle requires them to wake up at a different time, it’s largely up to the player to remember to wake their Sim up at that specific time. This can lead to Sims missing work, school, social events, afters-school activities, and more. The Sunrise Alarm Clock Mod for The Sims 4 can solve these problems!
Sunrise Alarm Clock Mod in The Sims 4
The Sunrise Alarm Clock Mod is by Lot51 and conveniently hosted on CurseForge! Players can automatically download and install the mod into their games through the CurseForge Mod Manager app. Also, remember to download the Core Library mod, which is required for the Sunrise Alarm Clock mod to work. The Core Library mod is also hosted on CurseForge. All links will be provided at the end of this article.
The mod is base game compatible but having High School Years can enhance certain features.
Once both the Sunrise Alarm Clock Mod and the Core Library are installed in your game, you’ll find the Reclaimed Wood Grain Alarm Clock in the Alarms section under Electronics. If High School Years is installed, the Bread n’ Butter Toaster Alarm Clock will have a Sunrise-compatible version available. Also, all of Scumbumbo’s TS2 conversion alarm clocks are automatically compatible with this mod.
There is a Sunrise option available on all compatible alarm clocks. Click it for options to set an alarm, manage existing alarms, or enable daily news reports.
Creating and Managing Alarms
When creating an alarm, you can choose a specific time of day for your Sim to wake up, have them wake up two hours before their career shift starts, or have them wake up with the sunrise. You can specify which days of the week you want your Sim to wake up to their alarm, too. So your Sims can enjoy a lie-in on their days off work! Also, you can set multiple alarms for your Sim for multiple days of the week if they need to be up at different times on certain days.
Furthermore, you can create alarms for specific Sims on the alarm clock. If your Sim shares a bed with a romantic partner, their partner won’t wake up to your Sim’s alarm. Likewise, your Sim won’t wake up to their partner’s alarm. If only it worked like that in real life!
If you want to temporarily disable an alarm or delete an alarm, you can do that too through the Manage Alarms menu.
The Daily Report
Your Sim can catch up on all the latest news as soon as they wake up to their alarm clock. Enable The Daily Report to get the weather and local news when your Sim shuts off their alarm. A popup notification tells you what the weather is like that day. Also, it tells you the three most recent Neighbourhood Stories.
The Sunrise Alarm Clock Mod for The Sims 4 comes with two reward traits. One is Bedrock, which causes your Sim to sleep through their alarm a lot. The other is Rise n’ Shiner, which ensures your Sim always wakes up to their alarm.
The Bedrock trait only costs 25 Satisfaction Points. The Rise n’ Shiner trait is more expensive but still an affordable 225 Satisfaction Points.
